Admitted Serial Killer to be Extradited to Southeast Missouri

ST. LOUIS, MO - Admitted serial killer Timothy Krajcir is expected to be extradited to Missouri this week to face charges in the murders of five women in Cape Girardeau.

Krajcir's extradition has been delayed for weeks.  Last year he admitted committing the five murders more than 30 years ago.

STLtoday, the Web site for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports that Krajcir's extradition hearing will be today in Cairo, Illinois.

He is being held in Illinois for the deaths of two women there.

He is expected to appear in Cape Girardeau court Thursday by video feed.
